    Default Video thumbnails

    first congrats for releasing 2.3. tested it a bit and it looked pretty robust. thanks for adding subtitle and resume options for us samsung tv users. you can now use a thumbnail of a scene of your choice from the movie but you have to manually do it for every file. can you add an option to redo the thumbnails automatically of a scene 25% into the movie? this would stop the display of company logos on every movie file.

    one problem i've had on the samsung tv was with a smart playlist in my movie folder (50 recently added files). I couldn't open it on my samsung. now i have only a list of folders in my video section. sometimes would stop after opening the video section with the error message "there are no video files".

    that's it for now. have still to check a whole movie if the random stopping is fixed.

    I've also had the "no video files" after downloading the new release. I have a Samsung blu-ray home theatre. The last download worked fine except for the normal Samsung problems. Now it is unuseable and I hope that the problem is fixed before Easter because I planned a few days of movie watching. I can't get any files to show on my Samsung at all. Is it just a Samsung problem or is 2.3 bugged for everyone.

    forget the video thumbnail suggestion... just ran maintain library and the thumbnails are updated with a better image further into the movie... maybe it could even be a bit further, still have some title screens and movie company images... as an example: all "american dad" episodes show the same image because it's of the intro in front of each episode.

    the "no video file" message comes up for me only at random times and most times after retrying opening the video section it works. another thing: had a "media play" error a few times while browsing my folders and going from one folder to the root directory.

    You can now set the thumbnail for a movie file to anything you wish it to be - just go to Properties and then change the thumbnail (you'll have an option to drag the slider to any point in the movie).

    Can you please send in the logs for when you experience the "no files" issue?

    seems like mezzmo updated the thumbnails again and it shows now a scene from each episode of "american dad" and not the intro scene, so i think it's good like it is.

    after rebuilding my database with mezzmo 2.3 and replacing the samsung profiles with the updated ones you've posted (although i have a samsung c tv) i could not reproduce the errors i've had with "no video files" and "media play" while browsing. but it seems like i've lost the subtitle option in the tools menu of my samsung c tv.

    nevertheless i'm happy with your software and your support, so I'll definitely will be a paying customer after the evaluation period.
